Pilates is based on concepts of control, body awareness, and precision. Core stability and control are foundations of normal, functional movement. Pilates reinforces this by teaching these concepts in an exercise setting and applying them to normal daily movements, whether they be running a marathon or picking up a grandchild. Through precise, deliberate exercises, our PTs and instructors will teach you how to engage your "core" muscles in coordination with more distal muscles to achieve normal movement.
One of the main benefits of pilates-based strengthening is that it is applicable for a wide range of people, from high school athletes through the geriatric population.
